Secretory otitis media is a non-suppurative inflammatory disease of middle ear characterized by conductive deafness and tympanic effusion. The etiology and pathogenesis of secretory otitis media are still not very clear, among which the theory of negative pressure of middle ear and the theory of infection are recognized by most scholars. According to the theory of negative pressure of middle ear, secretory otitis media is caused by poor function of eustachian tube, poor gas exchange of middle ear mucosa or bad vaporization of mastoid process, and dysfunction of cleaning function of middle ear, which leads to negative pressure of middle ear, then mucosal edema and exudation, which leads to accumulation of middle ear fluid and formation of secretory of middle ear inflammation. Otitis media will be affected by the progress of secretory otitis media is serious. If the treatment is not timely, it can develop into adhesive otitis media. At present, the treatment of the disease is mostly aimed at antibacterial and liquid excretion. The drug treatment has surface active substances, corticosteroids, antibiotics, antihistamines and so on, but its curative effect is not accurate, easy to repeat, and has different degrees of adverse reactions. Therefore, the treatment of secretory otitis media from the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine has been paid more and more attention. Under the guidance of the theoretical system of “holistic concept” and “dialectical treatment” in TCM clinic, it is helpful to further apply it in clinic and get better therapeutic effect.
